NF-Lee's Gildor and Frodo

Frodo in Caravaggio's 'Narcissus’, with jan-u-wine's "Unbroken”.


Warning: Long post, with many images, some quite large.

A year ago, scrolling through Caravaggio paintings, I saved files of his “Narcissus” as soon as I saw it. I was sure I’d want to make a manip of it one day. That day has come.

For this post, the discussion of the painting will come first, after which I will make a few reflections about Frodo in the finished manip. After the manip will come Jan-u-wine's poem, Unbroken, for which this manip was made. A "making of" section concludes the entry.
